    (ANSAmed) - SARAJEVO, DECEMBER 11 - Operations to transfer migrants from the Vucjak camp in northwestern Bosnia-Herzegovina near the border with Croatia ended late last night when 15 buses carrying a total of 700 migrants reached the hosting center of Usivak, near Sarajevo, where everything was ready to host them.

    Subsequently the migrants will be taken to the former barracks of Blazuj, where they are expected to spend the winter.

    The spokesperson of the canton of Sarajevo, Mirza Hadziabdic, was quoted by local media as saying that operations to transfer them took place with the deployment of over 100 police officers without difficulty or incidents.

    Several media outlets reported that several hundreds of migrants lived in inhumane conditions at the camp under inadequate plastic tents without heating, electricity or running water and bathrooms. The emergency worsened with plunging temperatures and the snow. Bosnian authorities, under pressure from the international community, had recently announced they were shutting down the camp.
